From The Academy at San Elijo web site:
The Academy at San Elijo is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization. The Academy has a commitment to excellence in being the premier development academy for youth athletes in North County San Diego. The Academy approach accommodates and accepts that youth athletes still have a lot of learning and growing to do. It recognizes that putting them in an environment where they would receive more training is more developmentally appropriate. This approach will allow us to foster development over winning. Success is a byproduct of player development. Parents and coach’s have roles and responsibilities, as well as taking care of their actions without letting them undermine our real purpose. With youth athletes it is the coach’s job to develop all players without discretion of ability. The Academy will provide a fun, safe, and positive environment for these youth athletes to not only develop as athletes, but as individuals! The developmental years are so critical to these youth athletes. The Academy at San Elijo is committed to providing all youth athletes the opportunity to develop their game(s), as well as inspire a lifelong passion!
